Make sure you case has adaquate cooling and try cleaning you computer of dust.

What games are you trying to play on a 520?

Deemo13 a b Î Nvidia July 7, 2012 7:27:37 AM BF3 is going to have a serious fit trying to play on a GT520. Most of the other games should run fine. bhavya kapoor July 7, 2012 9:38:34 AM BF3 used to run fine but now all games lag bcoz of overheating .. Deemo13 a b Î Nvidia July 7, 2012 7:09:46 PM Are there fans in your case? Is it well ventilated? If it has a fan on it, then you can download something like MSI Afterburner that can adjust the fan speeds. Technically the 520 does not meet minimum spec for BF3 by a longshot, so I just want to know how its possible. EDIT: Well Youtube just gave me the answer, that it is in fact possible. So I won't be talking about how it wont play well anymore. TheBigTroll July 7, 2012 7:38:05 PM low settings with everything turned down. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
